For those with disabilities, the main house is very easily accessible:

  • no steps at the main entrance or in any of the bedrooms
  • all doors (including bedrooms and bathrooms) are 800 mm wide
  • one room (the Tauhara Room) has grip handles by the toilet and in the shower
  • all showers are wheelchair accessible in the main house
  • shower stool is available on request
  • beds are 0.75 metres from the floor to the top of the mattress
  • the gap from the wall to the bed in all rooms is at least 800 mm


The cottage is not quite as accessible.

  • two steps on the access path, but once over those, the whole of the studio is on one level except the shower which is not wheelchair accessible
  • all beds are 0.75 mm from the floor to the top of the mattress and are greater than 800 mm from the walls
